A law enforcement center project has been given the green light by Guthrie County voters in Tuesday’s special election.

The referendum asking voters whether the County should enter into a loan agreement to issue $8.7 million in general obligation bonds to construct a new Sheriff’s Office and county jail as an addition to the county courthouse, and make improvements to the courthouse parking lot passed with an overwhelming majority of 80.6% of the vote. The unofficial results show 2,067 votes were counted with 1,666 voting in favor of the project and 401 voting against. The results will be made official in a canvass by the Guthrie County Board of Supervisors next Tuesday.
